    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Pacific Sunwear (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The discount was nice, good product.

    Cons

    Even with little pay you are expected to buy and wear the newest on trend merchandise, the DMs harness a mean corporate culture rather than a team atmosphere.

    Pros

    The biggest benefit working at pacsun is that is near to many shops and restaurants. The hours working here are very flexible

    Cons

    A few cons of working at pacsun is that the hours may be flexible but there aren’t many hours to give the employees in the first place besides on holidays

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to keep up their good work. They really try to keep up with all they have to do

    minimal hours easy to work around school very understanding people work isnt challenging you get great discounts nice work environment

    Cons

    for sales associate the pay is minimum wage with only increase if moving up to sales lead or manager also its very difficult to get a lot of hours
